Dammit, Chuck! Your videos are the whole reason that I bought Game of Thrones!

Looks like I'm going to have to buy Stranger Things too!

I’ll have to play before I would buy. Maybe a pro to put on location.

im trying to resist an LE purchase as well, but I don't think its working... LOL

#9 11 months ago

LE ordered

#10 11 months ago

Def wouldn't buy an LE but I do have Premium monies, and no more space, so pros may be in the past

Wont know anything to till I see some rules, but I'm optimistic.

#11 11 months ago

I’m just waiting confirmation on my LE order.

#12 11 months ago

Will probably be getting a pro can't wait to play it.

#13 11 months ago

I was ready to order an LE because I have been wanting a Stranger Things pin forever. I had to find out first who was the coder.. and found it to be Lonnie.

That is such a bummer. After KISS, then Aerosmith... it's very hard to trust the code will be anything worth playing over and over again. I'll have to wait this one out. Maybe it will be a turnaround for him, but his track record says otherwise.

Looking forward to feedback on it though.

#14 11 months ago

Well shit. Just found out... I need to find a distributor that still has LE available.

#15 11 months ago

I'm excited for this one, looking forward to seeing it play tonight on stream. Probably in on LE or premium, projection seems way cool and I would imagine can be used in lots of different ways. Hopefully it's not just like 5-10 static things over and over.

#16 11 months ago

This is so deflating. I went from feeling like a kid at Christmas to just super bummed. Anyone know of any distributors with an LE available?

Try Trent.

Unfortunately based upon's Stern usage of the playfield LCD on BM66 and SW I'm not getting my hopes up....

#20 11 months ago

In on a Pro! Thinking of using this remix somewhere and adding 80's music where appropriate.

Also thinking of Illusion Violet or Purple for Powder Coating.

I’m so excited you’re in on this. Haha.

#22 11 months ago

Thanks, finally a title that gets me excited!

How about something like this Plasma disc on the backboard for a Pro? Gotta find a way to wire and tie into lighting.

Pinball’s.com ask for Mike!

#24 11 months ago

Deposit placed for a premium!

#25 11 months ago

In on LE . Lonnie code your ass off !!

Congrats! Never thought I’d do this, but we’re getting an LE from Trent!

#27 11 months ago

Pro ordered

#28 11 months ago

Congrats everybody!
Hope you get your machines soon and enjoy!

#29 11 months ago

In on an LE. Game looks great!

#30 11 months ago

I am going to wait and see on this one but so far I like the Premium art the best.

Psycho Billy for the win!

#31 11 months ago

Just placed my order for a Pro. Looking forward to watching the stream tonight but since this is going on location the theme alone is an instant buy for me.

#32 11 months ago

In on the LE.

Can’t wait!!

#33 11 months ago

Can’t wait to play this one. Lols god so far.

#34 11 months ago

In on LE. Love the theme, immersion will be off charts

#35 11 months ago

Before the announcement I was like if the LE has awesome purple armor and monsters all over it I’m getting it.

What are the odds that would actually happen?? Haha

#36 11 months ago

Oh cool. The modes aren’t always in the same order. That’s awesome. Or a shot on the playfield changes them.

Well I'd hope they learned that very simple lesson by now!

#38 11 months ago

Will be going in on a premium TPF show special. The LE is beautiful with the purple trim. I do like the cab art better on the premium. May have to powder coat the premium. Very happy the way it turned out! Can't wait to own one.

Yep, thinking premium myself. Maybe a Louisville show special

Since having ACDC premium with the armor and GOT premium and the metal apron, I had to get both with this game. Not to mention the upgraded sound package plus a external sub is going to be nuts.

#41 11 months ago

In on a pro (for now). I like what i see on the stream.

#42 11 months ago

The game was awesome even as a pro! Can't wait till they show the premium!

#43 11 months ago

most local powdercoaters will do it for 100-150

I plan on having mine done whenever it comes in. This color is the front runner at the moment.

Going for the PRO. LE is appealing too but I'm a cheap ass mofo. Want everything for no money.

No, all crazyness aside. LE is good and I love the projector feature. I am reluctant about that feature however, how does it hold up in lit environments, and I dislike those white reflective stickers. The backboard magnet feature is sublime but doesn't add to gameplay I guess. Magna save will be missed I think, I always love playfield magnets.
But the pro looks great and is available on short term so that's the one I'm going for. Will add a shaker motor, side blades and convolux to it as well as a subwoofer in the cabinet (JBL stage-2 810)

Looking forward to the machine as well as all you guys getting it before me. Please review your machine here and add some pictures of your machine setup in your gameroom.

#47 11 months ago

In. Mornings are for coffee and contemplation and ordering an LE.

Anyone have an idea how much the game designer helps out the programmers with rules and modes of a game?

Like does Brian Eddy hand off this layout and say “good luck with the rules” to Lonnie or does Brian work with Lonnie to come up with a rule set?

I can’t imagine Keith Elwin not being majorly involved. Anyone ever hear how this works?

#50 11 months ago

Depends on the team. I’ve heard that ST is a group effort between Mike Lonnie and Brian.

But Keith is all Keith. He just tells the coder what to do for the most part.

But I’m sure every game has input from lots of the Stern team including their beta testers.
